SALKANTAY TREKKING REVIEWS
“Salkantay Trek - awesome!"
I just finished the Salkantay 4 day trek with the Salkantay Trekking Company out of Cusco, and it was great. Our guide, David, was very knowledgeable about the trail, the area, Inca and Peruvian history, including Manchu Picchu where we finished the trek, and about local flora and fauna. He really went the extra mile to make the trip a special experience and to ensure everyone in the group was comfortable. Everyone in our group agreed he added a lot to the trek. Our cook and horseman, who supported our trek, were also great. Our gear was well looked after and the food was very good. The trek was reasonably priced, as well. I would definitely trek with this company again.
